LUBBOCK, Texas -

In response to Sunday night's shooting in Las Vegas, United Blood Services is working to gather resources and donors.

Although the West Texas United Blood Services has not yet been called to assist, they are on standby, ready to go when notified.

They are encouraging everyone and anyone who is eligible to go and donate.

"We do have the ability to help each other out, whether we need it here in West Texas or if they need it there in Las Vegas, we can draw blood here and ship it there as needed and vise versa," said Brandon Baker with West Texas United Blood Services. "So it's important that people not only in Las Vegas donate, but they do in West Texas and they do in Arizona, and they do in Florida and all over we can help each other out."

If you would like donate blood, the United Blood Services spokesman said the easiest way to donate is to call and schedule an appointment.

To contact West Texas United Blood Services, call (806) 797-6804.
